Joe Torre: Expanded Replay Is Coming In 2014

MLB Executive Vice President Joe Torre, appearing before the Baseball Writers Association of America, announced today that he's "pretty confident" that expanded instant replay will happen next year. It's still unclear what exactly will be added to the existing review for home run calls, but talk has centered on trap plays and fair/foul calls down the lines. Torre also stated that "we're still in the tweaking stages", mainly since any rule changes have to be signed off by both the umpire and player unions.
